In collaboration with Catamount Arts. How can we challenge sexism? Racism? Ageism? These are just a few examples of the types of “structural violence” that impact our lives. Students from Lyndon State College with collaborate with conflict mediator/performing artists Dana Caspersen to create a choreographic public dialogue event that will bring together participants from the College and the community to analyze and experience the properties and presence of structural violence, entirely through their bodies.
Commissioned specifically for Lyndon’s Year of Social Justice, this project will use posture and everyday motion in a lively, interactive form to uncover the ways in which structural violence shapes how we use our bodies, and how the way we use our bodies, in turn shapes the political, economic, and cultural structures that result in avoidable harm; such as racism, sexism, or heterosexism.
We are looking for program participants as well as people to attend the event. If you are interested in participating in the event, contact Brice Bird.
